Manufacturing strategy investigation - Application of the STRATEGO-tool
Paper in proceeding, 2016

The STRATEGO-tool was developed for small and medium-sized manufacturing companies, SMEs, to work on their manufacturing strategies. The tool has during the past two years been used as an analytical tool in master courses at Chalmers University of Technology. This use was not originally intended, since there may be other operations and sizes than manufacturing SMEs, but it has shown to be working quite well in other contexts, adding considerably to the quality of the projects as well as to students learning. Companies involved are satisfied and get feedback on their operations and suggestions for improvements.
